Living together

We share our lives in supportive community homes in the heart of the North York Moors. Living together gives us stability, friendship and a sense of belonging.

Working together

Gardener, artisan, baker, home-maker – everyone in the community has a job they do to the best of their ability. Our work sustains the community and gives our lives meaning and purpose.

Growing together

Celebrating festivals, singing together, putting on plays, marking life events – creating a shared cultural life helps us to grow as individuals and as a community.
